The Cherry Hill Public Library will offer an opportunity to meet the authors of “No Slam Dancing, No Stage Diving, No Spikes” on Tuesday, Aug. 26 at 7 p.m. Authors, Amy Yates Weulfing and Steven DiLodovico, partnered to write an oral history of the legendary City Gardens.
This book tells the story of how a lifeless, concrete bunker in Trenton became a cornerstone of the underground music scene.
Told through the memories of bands, bouncers, stage management, bartenders and fans, “No Slam Dancing” is part history, part sociological study, and part legend. It is a document of times and events that occurred during the last great music age before technology changed everything.
Co-author Amy Yates Weulfing graduated from Temple University and has worked as a music journalist since 1985. She currently works as vice president of marketing at a business consulting firm. Steven DiLodovico, an experienced music journalist and fellow co-author, grew up in the underground music scene of the 1980s and spent his formative years going to punk and heavy metal shows. Steven has worked with several indie and major labels in various positions and has been a freelance writer for 15 years.
This event is free and open to the public. Seating is limited and registration is required. For more information, visit chplnj.org.
